Handmade Japanese Ofuros – Deep Soaking Tubs

A traditional Japanese relaxation method was to use an ofuro as a way to release negative energy. An ofuro is a deep soaking tub made of wooden construction. These tubs will commonly be at least 25 inches deep compared to a standard bathtub today which is more along the lines of 10-14 inches. The pictures here feature ofuros made of walnut and teak using handmade construction techniques. Via.
